Giveaway Time!

As promised, we're giving away a bottle of
Wash Tyme Liquid Glycerin Soap,
your choice of Citrus or Lavender.


Here are three reasons that you should try to win this giveaway:

Reason #1: The soap is simply amazing in the laundry. When I first got it, I washed my daughter's jacket with it. She's a tough little girl who plays hard, and it shows in her clothes. The jacket was a mess and I didn't think that it would ever come clean. To prove my point, I took before pictures. I put the Wash Tyme soap right on the stains (which made up most of the jacket at that point!), as recommended. Because I'm basically lazy, I didn't soak it overnight as recommended; I just threw it in the washer. Well, the jacket came out stain-free. Honestly, I was shocked.

Again, I took pictures, with a future post in mind. When I went to write this, I found the pictures. The only problem was that I couldn't find the before pictures! Without them, the after pictures are somewhat pointless. So, you're just going to have to trust me on this one. :)

Reason #2 that you need this soap: It tackles really tough jobs. Our dishes weren't getting clean. I thought we needed a new dishwasher. I also thought that the spokes on the bottom rack of the dishwasher were rusty because they were this ugly dark color. There was no money for a new dishwasher, so Nick started taking apart the old one. He found lots of nasty gunk in the bottom of it, and he started cleaning everything with Wash Tyme. That's when we discovered that nothing was rusty; it was just dirty. Wash Tyme made the entire dishwasher look like new, and better yet, helped it function like new!

Reason #3 is that it's just plain good stuff. It's environmentally friendly, it's locally made (and we love supporting small family businesses!), it's gentle on our skin and it kicks butt on tough cleaning jobs. It may not lather much in hard water (our water is soft and it produces plenty of bubbles), but it still cleans well. It cuts grease on dishes and on our stove top, and cleans the pots that I'm famous for burning. I know that it would do an amazing job of cleaning our scary oven, but I just can't bring myself to tackle that job yet. ;)

Wash Tyme Handmade Liquid Glycerin Soap

We are happy to announce that we're now carrying Wash Tyme Liquid Glycerin Soap! This amazing soap is made from a vegetable glycerin base which is the byproduct of making biodiesel from used cooking oil. This results in a much higher level of glycerin than other soaps and unique cleaning properties that no other soaps have. This soap is scented with 100% essential oils, your choice of citrus or lavender.


We have been using this soap for over a year now and we couldn't be happier with it. It's great for the environment, it's gentle on our skin, and it's fantastic for cleaning. We're all about simplifying our products and this product fits the bill.

Suggested Uses:

Hand soap/Body wash

General Cleaning: Mix 50:50 or less with water in spray bottle

Laundry: Follow machine recommended amount
(okay for HE washers)

Laundry Presoak: Apply small amount to stain,
let sit overnight in water

Glass Cleaner: 1-2 tablespoons in 1 gallon water

Traditional Soap vs. Commercial Soap:

Traditional soap is made by saponifying either an animal fat or vegetable oil by reacting it with a caustic dissolved in water. The soap created is actually a salt with a natural byproduct called glycerin which is the component that makes your skin feel so great. This is real soap. Wash Tyme Liquid Glycerin Soap is simply fully saponified vegetable oil glycerin, water, and essential oils.

Many commercial 'soaps' may smell pretty and have pretty labels as an enticement to buy them, but they are actually just detergents with added chemicals. They are full of artificial colors, fillers, synthetic fragrances, chemically derived surfactants to promote foaming, such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), and Disodium Phosphate, a buffer and effervescent used to make detergent. Antibacterial soap also contains Triclosan, classified by EPA as a pesticide.

Your largest organ, the skin, absorbs the products you put on it. Which would you rather use, soap made from natural oils or a detergent made from chemicals, many of which have been linked to cancer and other diseases?

In addition, the soap that you use goes down the drain and makes its way back to the environment. So, if you're washing with chemical-laden detergents, that's what you're giving back to the earth.
